Ace wrestler Bajrang Punia on Tuesday announced his association with sports equipment brand ASICS. The company said in a press release that the tie-up marked its foray into wrestling.

Sharing his excitement on being an ASICS athlete, Bajrang Punia said: "I am extremely happy to be associated with ASICS as their athlete. Being an ASICS athlete gives me the pleasure of working with a brand that I absolutely love and have been using since the start of my journey as an athlete. As a wrestler, I constantly need to improve my grip and stability to execute my game plan," Bajrang was quoted as saying in the release.

The personal preference of the wrestler is the ASICS HyperGEL YU for all his training and running sessions.

Speaking on the brand association, Rajat Khurana, Managing Director, ASICS India, said, "We are extremely delighted to bring on board India's most promising wrestler, Bajrang Punia, as an ASICS athlete. Wrestling has always been a focus for the brand globally and this association is an extension of the brand's 'I Move Me' campaign. In India, this marks our entry into the sport of wrestling."

ASICS also sponsors star US wrestler Jordan Burroughs, Olympic and 4-time world champion. The JB elite (Jordan Burroughs Elite), a wrestling shoe named after him, is quite popular among the wrestlers worldwide.
